Double Wide Homes Available in Michigan

What is a double wide manufactured home?

A doublewide is a manufactured home that comes with a title and in which there are two sections to the house.

How many beds and baths are available in double wide homes?

Some double wides have 2 bedrooms, but most are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. We’ve seen as many as 5 bedrooms and 3 baths in a double wide home. You could, in theory, custom design it and have as many as you wanted, within the size limitations.

What is the range of square footage available?

The smallest double wides that we offer are around 1200 square feet, and the largest comes in at 2280 square feet.

What kind of options or customization is available?

There is total flexibility with customization, just like with our modular homes. We can move walls, stretch the house, flip the floorplan, and more. Tell us what you’re wanting and we can let you know if it’s available.

You have the options of adding rooms, removing rooms, and have your choice of all kinds of options for your bathrooms, kitchen and cabinets, entertainment centers, fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, and ceramic showers. We can bump the walls up to 9-foot walls, or include steeper roof pitches.

As far as the outside of the home, we can add decks, porches, patios, garages, pole barns, and additions like sunrooms or 3 season rooms. We can also construct basements, crawl spaces, or slabs if you want your home on one of these.

Which homes are on display and can be seen?

COVID Safety Measures

We have added signs on the doors of each home to limit our demo models to one family at a time. When inside the home, we also ask that each guest leaves the door open so others know you are in there, and to ensure proper ventilation. We also limit the number of people in our office and have enhanced cleaning measures around the model homes as well. Another new addition is our plastic shields on the salespeople’s desks to ensure added space while getting your questions answered. We also ask that our employees and everyone visiting us to wear a mask and follow social distancing measures.

Are display walkthroughs by appointment only?

Walk-in visits are fine, and you can come anytime our models are open during business hours. We encourage setting up appointments so we can schedule a salesperson to meet with you one on one, but you can come in anytime we’re open.

What is the timeline between contact, decision-making, purchase, transportation, and move in?

If the home is going into a park, and you order today, you can expect to move in around 4 months from now. It will take a few weeks to set up, and you can move into the home in as little as 3 weeks from the time it arrives at the park.

If the home is going on private property, you can expect to move in around 3 months from delivery. It generally took around 6-8 weeks pre-Covid, but with delays due to the virus, it takes around 3 months now. Some aspects of the house take longer to set up on private property than they do at a park.

Double wide homes can also be installed on basements, crawl spaces, or slabs. Let us know where your home will go and we can provide you with a more specific time frame for construction of the home.

Luxury Double Wide Homes

What makes a double wide mobile home “luxury”?

There are 2 main versions of double wide homes – one is made with wallboard, and one is finished drywall. Luxury double wide homes tend to have finished drywall, oak or maple kitchens, fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, ceramic showers, transom windows, and 9-foot ceilings, as well as deluxe kitchen packages with deluxe appliances.

"As we have been searching for a home for many months, it has been difficult fighting discouragement. I have been telling my family that the right house and the right people would happen in Gods time. We are truly blessed. Our prayers were answered! Thank you for everything, Wendy. We are very, very, very happy!"

My wife and I purchased a home from Preferred to place on land. The experience was fantastic and the home is beautiful. Everyone from the Sales person to the other office girls, Mary & Sherri, through the Set-up, Service, Drywall crews and the owner went above and beyond in every area! I would HIGHLY recommend Preferred to everyone I know and if we ever planned to move again we would order from Preferred and do it over again.


Matt and the staff at Preferred Mobile Homes do an excellent job getting back to me when I contact them about our mutual clients. Their service is always top notch and professional. I would recommend Preferred Mobile Homes to everyone I know. Great job team!


We are currently in the process of having our new home finished with Preferred Homes. It has been delivered and the outside has been put together and finished. We are still in the process of having the inside done. So far we are really happy with Preferred and all the crews that they have had do work for us. We would recommend purchasing from them. The sales staff was very helpful in dealing with the factory and us. We did a custom floor plan and they were very accommodating with the living arrangement we were looking for.


Totally amazing staff!!!! Homes were staged JUST LIKE HOME!!! Never seen anything other mobile home store like it!!!! Amazing place. Would definitely recommend. Thank you for your knowledgeable help!!!!!


We absolutely love our home. We had a thunderstorm a couple of weeks ago and our dog is big time afraid and shakes, well we couldn't even hear the thunder in our house!!!!! I could not believe it. Built very solid.


I have personally know the founder, Kim Arnold, since the late 70's. You are not going to find a more honest person to deal with or to buy a home from. My family has been in the manufactured home business since 1961. We have always referred people to Preferred if and when they need something we can't help them with. They have hauled dozens of homes for us over the last 40 years. Always with a handshake and a smile. If your looking for a new manufactured home, go see the fine people at Preferred. Tell them Bill sent you.


We currently are going thru the process with them and it has been awesome. Really good customer service...right before we closed on the house I ended up going into labor and had a baby. They sent flowers and a teddy bear to the house we are currently living in. Extremely thoughtful!!!! Has gone above and beyond would extremely recommend them. Even some bumps in the road we have hit they always make it right...awesome people!


We just toured homes and signed papers for purchase of one yesterday! Tim was so helpful, and didn’t try to push us to purchase. He was very knowledgeable about the homes we viewed, and I’m looking forward to working with the rest of their staff in completing our journey in purchasing our new home!


The staff at Preferred were all so amazing! Thanks for getting us into our dream home!
